I live in Hawaii, I was in Philidelipha for this is hardcore, and for some dumb reason I forgot you guys are from there and I hate myself for not trying to contact you guys, atleast to say hi and give you all handshakes and hugs for changing my life.
Sorry we’re responding to this late but WOW that’s really cool you would even think of us just being here, that is very flattering. Hit us up next time and tell us all about Hawaii :) :) :)
I get mean when I get smart And when I set my mind to it there’s little I can’t pick apart I’ve been known to erupt and self-destruct So you should keep a safe distance Or I may drag you into this abyss without you realizing it Always thinking but never full Forever unaware that there’s a world outside of my skull
I recall what a psychiatrist once said Of the things I’d rather not forget She taught me this subconscious trick, taught me to write them down in red Said that way they’d “stay stuck in my head”
So often I’m surprised By some of the thoughts that come leaking through my lips at times If I invite you in with a slight grin then it’s a masterful disguise Perfectly masking the malevolence hidden behind my down-turned eyes And I have rows of teeth behind my teeth to make the most of every bite And I could drag you so far underneath that you could only dream of light
I am not the type who easily forgets No I relish my regrets But I took her up on that advice and wrote all my misdeeds in red To be sure they stay stuck in my head
A growing list of my dead ends And an ever shrinking list of friends It’s a sour, smirking resentment
Today was an exciting one here at our office as it saw the unveiling of two very special, near and dear records and our first foray into putting out a book (even if it has 200 pages and probably less than 200 words, haha). The humbling feeling of validation when you see…
Wonderful and terrible things happen there, things you want to think about, but things that destroy you when you do. But then you’re forced to go back to one every night, and you can’t help but compare the two experiences, and how one, the one you usually have on a nightly basis, is seriously lacking. And then you wonder….for far too long.
You almost got me. As the guy that wasn’t on it, I could have shpealed real hard about this. But I stopped myself. Hopefully when “Naturally” comes out, we won’t ever have to hear about porch luck again. I get the sentimentality of that song, but to me it’s as basic as this band gets. (oops).
Are you saying you plan on not touring once you guys release this next album? I hope you will play at least a few places.. because some friends, and I especially, would kill to see you just once. Even in another state.
We honestly don’t know what we’ll do, whether it be a week long tour or a couple of final shows. So, that’s all I can say. Thanks for caring though, really.
This has nothing to do with your touring, but what do you think of Runner Up? I've seen lots of posts complaining about them and since they put out your first LP I just wanted to know your opinion. My friend told me he ordered your LP over a year ago and still hasn't gotten it after countless emails.
We’re bummed about it, and we’ve told him every time there are complaints, but there’s really nothing we can do. I’d like to be the hero and go to his house and get the records that need to be shipped and ship them myself, but it’s not my or anyone else’s responsibility. We’re sorry. Our second LP will be fully released through Count Your Lucky Stars.
Isn't it sad though when you think about it? I mean, you have the fanbase, you have the music. I'm sure if ya guys got more serious into it, you could be touring worldwide. It's all preference though.
It is sad, and trust me, I’d like to. But I also think you overestimate our popularity. I don’t think there’s any city where we will draw more than 50 people, and that’s being generous. The internet likes us a little, but people are so much more scattered in the real world. We’re also a bunch of sad pessimists, so there you go.
Never. Sorry. We’re unprofessional and unorganized. We are not a real band. We just happen to write songs and put them out. That’s pretty much it. We’ve played maybe 20 days “on tour”. It’s unfortunate and the result of many things.

“Some make a science out of keeping their heads down, but I’ve one-up on them, because mine’s buried underground. With so much thought put into what’s been said, its likely best if I don’t make a sound. I’m better off fading right into the background.
It’s not about self-doubt or deprecation, it’s more about knowing my limitations, and learning how to crawl between all my destinations, and learning to be patient about my frustrations.”
